Looking for a wide angle lens for scenery and milkyway shots as well as one where I can take large close ups(microphotography) of crystal structure for my mineral collecting hobby and the odd insect I find.
Would it be possible to get a 2 in one? if so can you recommend any for my canon 600d? if not then would anyone suggest both? no more than 250 each new or used
Also as a side note, my camera is modded so pictures have an orange tint to them, I have the AA filter that was removed and either I want to put it back or maybe theres another option, like a correction filter of some kind so I can take normal pictures? I think it is a baader correction filter installed, not sure what that is exactly as i've had it for several years.
I'm looking a bit of advice / opinions on a telescopes for a beginner, but useful, telescope.
I've gone through tonnes websites and now seem to find my self going round in circles.......
I've read that an 8inch dobsonian type will do pretty much everything I want without breaking the bank too much / me outgrowing it very quickly.
Main issue is that I'd like to be able to take imagery, whether thats with phone or camera to start I don't know. I understand tracking can be easier with something motorised rather than by hand.....
Budget wise, I don't want to spend a small fortune, or, get something I'll need to replace too soon. I'm based South in Manchester, UK, not sure if that has any bearing on choices.
It probably needs to be something with low maintenance requirements too.
My budget is low at around £300...... Not my decision on this one 😂
Cheers in advance
Hey guys! I'm not sure what to do. I currently have a t7c astro camera (asi120mc clone) and would like to get a better planetary camera. I'm eyeballing the ASI178MM as I've seen some amazing work done with it, but can't find anything substantial on using it with a 6" scope. My scope is a Skywatcher Explorer 150p and I usually use a 3x barlow as well as a svbony ir-pass (685nm) filter when doing high res lunar mosaics. I've seen some awesome work with 127mm scopes and the asi178mm which is why I can't wrap my head around what the results might look like. Will using an asi178mm give me a better result than the t7c when used on same focal lengths (2x, 3x barlows)? I understand that the resolution might be similar between "asi178mm + 2x" and "t7c + 3x" which could help me save time when doing huge mosaics, but is that all that I'd gain from this (not much better resolution?)?
Let me know please as I'm in a bit of a conundrum. Thanks!
You can find my work with the t7c here.
